Mr. Stanley Tien is a Neuro-Developmental and Behavioural Optometrist and the first in Malaysia private practice who was Board Certified in Vision Development and Vision Therapy. His advanced training uniquely enables him to serve children and adults, especially those with complex visual disorders. He gives careful evaluation and treatment of visual disorders associated with ADD/ADHD, Autism, Brain Injury, Dyslexia, Lazy Eye, Learning/Reading Disabilities, and Mental Retardation. He began his optical interest with a Diploma of Dispensing Optician. Based on his faith in this field, he further studied and completed his Bachelor of Science (Hons) in Optometry, from University of Wales (Cardiff, United Kingdom).
He travels across the world to attend conferences and reads the latest journals, bringing the most current knowledge available directly to benefit those who come to his office for a consultation. Mr Stanley Tien understands how problems with our visual system can affect cognitive and motor function, as well as the unique visual demands of many different activities e.g. copying from the board, spelling, catching a ball or looking at a computer screen. With specialties in Developmental & Behavioural Optometry,Paediatric Optometry, Geriatric Care, Vision Therapy , Color Therapy & Colour Vision Treatment, he went through a year of additional training at Mayday Eye Hospital(London).

He is also a Fellow and member of College of Optometrists in Vision Development, Australian College of Behavioural Optometrists, American Optometric Association, British Contact Lenses Association and a Fellow of the Association of British Dispensing Opticians. As a Developmental Optometrist, Mr Stanley Tien needs to be familiar with the unique demands of different activities that people engage in on a daily basis. For example, he understands the vision skills required for reading, writing and spelling and how they differ from the vision skills required by a music student trying to sight-read the music.
He is the first to bring the New Colourist System to Malaysia to help patients diagnosed with Colour Deficiency and Dyslexia. He is also the first to bring Vision Therapy to Malaysia. The Vision Therapy Centre helps those with Autism, Down Syndrome, Dyslexia, Lazy Eye and Learning-Related Visual Problems.
